According to the ‘Reggio approach’, the environment can be seen as a ‘third educator’. For this reason, the spaces in the school are extendable and adaptable, with in-between areas with no predefined use to generate constantly changing spatial situations.

The use of industrialized construction systems, the greenhouse and the structural wood panels guarantee meeting deadlines and budget control, while the wide variety of furniture creates a playground filled with constant surprises.
